UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the correct operation of the web servers situated within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers consistently, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can provide you with the necessary electrical power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites within a cloud hosting account with our company, you'll be able to forget about problems caused by power blackouts, simply because, in contrast to all kinds of other providers, we don't keep multiple hosting servers attached to one UPS. Alternatively, each individual web server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS unit that will keep it up and running for hours on end. Additionally, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have multiple generators which boot up for minutes and that can easily power each of the hosting servers for an extensive period of time. This way, the overall performance of your Internet sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service constantly.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it will be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with a fantastic infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a separate UPS for every web server or network switch located there to ensure that the proper functioning of any piece of equipment won't be disturbed until efficient generators start providing the necessary electricity. The latter can easily power the whole data center for a very long time without having to shut down any machines, so all of the Internet sites hosted on our servers will continue to function at max speed and with no effect on their performance. These electric power backup options allow us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
